BK Häcken booked their place in this year’s Swedish Cup (Svenska Cupen) quarterfinals with a hard-fought 1-1 draw against GIF Sundsvall to top Group 4 at the Bravida Arena on Saturday.
Thanks to Alhassan Kamara first goal since returning from a long injury lay-off.
Kim Skoglund scored the opener for GIF Sundsvall in the 25th minute to silence the home fans, but a resilient Hacken side fought back with a goal from Kamara to level the scoreline in the 69th minutes.
The Sierra Leone international Kamara finished well and his goal was enough to take Häcken to the quarterfinals with a better goal difference than Sundsvall.
Kamara was also on target against the current champion Östersunds FK when they were eliminated from the Svenska Cupen semi-final in March last year.
Andreas Alm’s men will have to wait to know their opponent in the quarterfinal in the next few days.
Häcken: Abrahamsson – Andersson, Wahlström, Lindgren, Ojala, Arkivuo – Friberg, Faltsetas, Berggren – Mohammed, Paulinho.
Gif Sundsvall: Eskelinen – Pirttijoki, Gracia, Myrestam – Björkander, Batanero, Cierocoles, Olsson – Gall, Wilson, Skoglund.
0-1 (25) Kim Skoglund, 1-1 (69) Alhassan Kamara.
